I am pleased to announce the general availability of CentOS Linux 7

== What's new (specific to armhfp)
As before, CentOS 7 userland for armhfp is still built from the CentOS 7
distribution, with some modified, added (or removed) packages.
Here are some highlights for the 7.3.1611 release :
 - Kernel (for both rpi2/2 and generic boards) was bumped to 4.4.x (LTS
version) to also follow the i386 AltArch kernel.
- uboot images were updated to version 2016.09
- rootfs-resize (unmaintained) had issue when resizing FS bigger than
32Gb, and has been replaced by cloud-utils-growpart
- default image[s] for rpi2/rpi3 now also support selinux directly
